Too bad Jason at Corporate Suspension is so difficult to track down. He has a primary job and does suspension on the side. He is damn good at suspension if you can deal with the difficulty of tracking him down. If you're interested I can PM you his info.

On a more personal note, I'm walking without crutches (have slight limp but it's getting better), rode my Harley for 30 mins the other day. Life is much better

I went through Skull Valley yesterday and stopped to see Iosepa. Then I headed down through Dugway to Simpson Springs. Nice day for a ride.

It was great out there today. Nice temps only complaint was its a little dusty.

You could keep up. All you have to do is twist your wrist.

Trailer camping St. George area

I need some advice for camping over the TG week near/around St. George. We have plans for the beginning of the week, but starting on Wed we'd like to find a place or two to park the trailer (21 ft), do a little riding with the kiddies (just loops around camp) and do some day hikes and the such. We'd prefer off the grid camping and some place with few neighbors (nothing against you guys of course).

Any recommendations?

My observations from previous visits...

a. We have camped a few miles south & east of Mesquite (38 mi so of St G) on BLM ground. Many areas to ride n explore. All the way to the canyon, toroweep, etc.

b. West of Santa Clara is one of the biggest Joshua tree forests I have ever seen. I think one could find some thing there.

c. North of SC is Enterprise. Much forest ground out there. Again, I think I could find a spot.

Get out your topo maps & pick a spot. I think there are many. IMHO, that is...

That's like two cripples out on the road.

Glad to hear there is hope for the leg.

I wanted to ride the 69 Triumph, but my leg and a kickstarter wasn't happening. Plus the HD is like riding a comfortable recliner, which for five weeks I had a lot of practice.
